Do you work in the construction sector? New limits have been introduced for thresholds, so that all newly built houses are accessible for people living with limited mobility. The maximum height for thresholds is 2 cm. This also applies to the route from the main road to the entrance of the home. At the moment, the maximum only applies to 1 entrance.
Lowering the threshold limit will make it more easy for people in a wheelchair or using a walker-rollator to enter buildings and homes.
